  • 1 cup Nut Butter (your favorite flavor)
  • 1/2 cup maple syrup
  • 3 tbsp protein powder (I used Vega Vanilla Sport)
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract or vanilla bean paste
  • 2 cups gluten free rolled oats
  • 1/4 cup raisins
  • 1/4 cup pecans


  • Place nut butter, maple syrup and vanilla in the bowl of a standing mixer. Mix on medium speed using the paddle attachment until thoroughly combined. Add the protein powder and salt and mix again, then add the oats one cup at a time and mix thoroughly. Add in the raisins and pecans and mix to fully combine. Scoop out 2 tablespoons of the mixture at a time and roll into balls. Store in the fridge or freezer.
